Just days after the BIF suggested that definition of wired broadband in India needs to be looked at, telecom service provider Airtel in its submission to the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) says that there is no need to change the definition of wired broadband in the country. At this time, an internet line that offers a minimum of 512kbps speeds is defined as broadband.

Airtel argues that any change in the definition of a broadband line in India should be in sync with the global trends and says that most other countries define broadband when the internet line is rated at 256kbps speeds or more. Airtel goes on to say, and what this seems to indicate, is that 512kbps speeds are enough to allow users to access various services, and goes on to illustrate examples that include “website browsing, downloading files, audio content, video content, streaming services, video conferencing, etc.”
